Against all odds, Netflix’s Lost in Space reboot became a surprise hit when it debuted in 2018. The series has earned solid reviews across two seasons and has also cultivated a respectable fanbase along the way. But now, it looks like the Robinsons’ journey across the cosmos is coming to an end (again). Via ComicBook.com, Netflix has just renewed Lost in Space for a third and final season.
According to showrunner Zack Estrin, a three-season run has been the plan from the very beginning.
“From the beginning, we’ve always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy,” said Estrin. “A three part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end. It’s also worth noting that, with what these characters go through just trying to survive each episode — if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission — it’s Will, Penny, Judy, Maureen, John, Don West, Dr. Smith… and The Robot. And, of course, Debbie the Chicken. So while this chapter of Lost In Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I’m excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead.”
“We are so thrilled to share more adventures of The Robinson Family and see their journey through to what is sure to be an epic finale,” add Netflix’s Ted Biaselli. “We’re especially thankful to Zack Estrin, Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni for helming Lost in Space, which has brought viewers a premium action-packed and visually spectacular series that the whole family can enjoy together, and we can’t wait for our family audiences to see where season 3 will lead!”
Although Lost in Space is ending, Estrin’s business relationship with Netflix is just getting started. Estrin has also signed an overall deal with Netflix to produce new shows over a multi-year period.
Lost in Space season 3 doesn’t have a release date yet.
